Doubt any of the contractors plan on triggering a LD clause

If the press box and game day operations functionality are ready (electronics, internet/intranet connectivity, scoreboard connections, lights, speakers, etc), which they probably will be, then there should be no/minimal impact on the games. Fan experience will probably be impacted if they aren't able to finish stadium back seating, walkways, etc. due to weather. Final landscaping and cleanup of the area probably won't be complete until sometime in March/April, as March is probably the earliest they would want to plant whatever vegetation is on the landscape plan. For those not in the contracting business, get ready to hear the term "substantial completion". The contractor will use that term to indicate they are "close" to finishing. There may be some wording in the contract that defines substantial completion, if not, then the contractor will define what that means to them. There will be a number of checkpoints/inspections along the way to completion. A key one will be getting a building occupation permit. Without that they won't be able to use the new facility.
